While the temps are still low, the flowers in my yard know spring is coming! This morning, Basil and I finished our walk by going through our garden areas and yard.

Join us, won’t you?

enjoy this day fully – hug loved ones and express gratitude

I love fuzzy wuzzys!

I wish we had that kind of weather right now, I’m getting impatient with Spring!

I love the fuzzy caterpiller!

Gorgeous pictures. Loving the colors. It’s gray and gloomy here so I could look at those all day!

5 Aimee March 30, 2011 at 11:12 am

That is so cute!! We don’t get fuzzy wuzzys here. You have a lot going on already in your garden! Lucky you!

Those flowers are beautiful! I went hiking a few days ago and saw a lot of beautiful flowers. SO excited for spring!

Sadly it does not look like spring here. I will make sure to hug loved ones and express gratitude!

11 Kristina March 30, 2011 at 11:42 am

If there wasn’t still snow on the ground I would….for now i’m living vicariously through you.


12 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:46 am

oh, girl… sorry! I can’t believe how some areas are in the 90’s and others have SNOW! crazy weird!! I hope its sunshine and warmth soon!


13 Stephanie @My Thorns Have Roses March 30, 2011 at 12:24 pm

I love this and am jealous at the same time. We got frosted a few days ago…am SOOO looking forward to pretty flowers to photograph!


14 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:42 am

same thing here, girl!! yesterday it was a prefect 68… this morning? cold enough to snow at 1500 feet!! crazy! I can’t wait until it’s sufficiently warm enough to plant my garden…


15 (what runs) Lori March 30, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful! Love the fuzzy ‘piller.


16 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:38 am

hee! cute little guy, right? 😀


17 Biz March 30, 2011 at 1:03 pm

I walked at lunch today . . . in 37 degree weather, and not a hint of spring is near! :(

Also, I was pissed because asparagus was $3.99 a pound and I wanted to make your soup – I’ll have to wait until the price goes down – its still on my list of things to make 😀


18 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:37 am

oh, Biz! I hope you get to make it soon! asparagus will be more reasonable soon, and probably more flavorful too!! I hope you guys are enjoying a nice weekend!


19 Patty March 30, 2011 at 1:52 pm

WOW! Gorgeous pictures :)

I hope Spring arrives soon!


20 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:36 am

thank you, Patty! :) I am SO looking forward to spring…

Ooooo what a cute little caterpillar!

I really like the picture of the tulips over the river, so beautiful. What a lovely garden you have!


22 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:34 am

thank you so much – I love this time of year when things start to bloom… I almost forget what is out there !!


23 Kath (My Funny Little Life) March 30, 2011 at 5:48 pm

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, beautiful! And I LOVE the caterpillar! So fluffy! 😀 😀 😀


24 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:33 am

thank you, Kath!! I love the fluffy ‘pillar, too! I’ve seen three since then!!


25 Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty March 30, 2011 at 8:29 pm

26 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:33 am

27 S @ extremebalance.net/blog March 30, 2011 at 8:35 pm

Oh, how fabulous! I’m just settling in for the last work push of the day, and the burst of energy from a walk in your garden was just right!


28 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:32 am

aww… I am so happy for this! 😀


29 Shirley @ gfe March 31, 2011 at 2:59 am

Such beautiful shots, Kristina. I love the daffodil photo, too, because I have a thing for water, but all of these make me smile. We’ve got flowering fruit trees, but it’s still too cold. :-( Soon we’ll be complaining that it’s too warm though. LOL



30 Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking March 31, 2011 at 8:57 am

These pictures are just awesome! I really love tulips.


31 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:16 am

thank you, Alicia!


32 Heather @ kissmybroccoli April 5, 2011 at 5:16 pm

Oh wow! That first picture is absolutely gorgeous! I am so clueless when it comes to flowers and foliage….what are those blue ones?


33 Christin@purplebirdblog April 5, 2011 at 5:28 pm
